Travel Advisory

Monterey County COVID-19

Monterey County Convention & Visitors Bureau’s primary concern is to ensure that travelers and residents are informed with the latest updates to our area as we continue to closely monitor the rapidly evolving situation of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are working diligently with our local health care community, county officials, and state and industry partners for continued up-to-date information.

California’s Governor has ordered a “shelter in place” for the entire state to protect the public health and capacity of health care facilities until further notice. This order does not include essential businesses, such as lodging, restaurants, health care providers and more. We encourage those in need to connect directly with individual businesses and lodging properties for operational updates and questions.Furthermore, many of our hotels have allowed for special considerations and suspensions beyond their normal cancellation policies.

While the normal Monterey County visitor experience has been altered at this time, we plan to bring our destination to you by sharing #SeeMontereyFromHome moments through our social media channels.

We also encourage travelers to follow the safety and travel guidance offered by the CDC and local and state public health authorities including:

  1. Wash your hands frequently for 20 seconds or use at least 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  2. Maintain social distancing by staying at least 6 feet from others.
  3. Cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing with a tissue and immediately dispose of it.
  4. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  5. If you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathing, seek medical care.

Our thoughts are with those affected by this virus. For additional public health and travel guidance, including health care providers in our area, we encourage you to visit the following links:
